Following a recent event in Mombasa, Kenyan musicians Nadia Mukami & Masauti were chased off the stage during their performance.

A fan claimed that the singers were chased off the stage during their performance in Mombasa to allow Tanzanian singer Mbosso to perform, “Can you imagine at yesterday’s concert Nadia Mukami and Masauti were chased off the stage just because of Mbosso and it’s his fault that he came late. Kenyans artists are just being treated as tr*sh.”

Comedian Eric Omondi, who has plans to push for change in the Kenyan music scene, responded to the matter by taking it to social media to condemn event organizers for giving foreign artistes priority and disregarding Kenyan artistes performing alongside them.

The comedian questioned why the two artistes allowed the organizers to mistreat them as claimed, “These Kenyan Artists wataendelea tu kuumia na Kudharauliwa mpaka siku ile wataniskia…Asiye skia la Mkuu Huvunjika guu…Anyway Plans are underway to bring up a totally new breed of musicians hawa washatuangusha.” 

However, according to Nadia Mukami, they had no way of defending the industry as expected, explaining that such actions do not require violence to solve.

“@ericomondi ulikuwa unataka mimi na Masauti tupige promoter ndio mjue we are fighting for the industry ama???There are things that haviitaji kifua!! Tunapambana sana!! You have a valid point ya kupush fighting to protect our industry but the way you are approaching it sometimes it’s just meeeeh!!! Stop making it an Eric Omondi fight!! It’s an industry conversation!!! That needs a lot of systems & structure building,” wrote Nadia.

Eric Omondi stated that despite their circumstance, they should have put their foot down and demanded respect but instead, they let everything slide and gave the promoters more reason never to take them seriously.

“My dear do not ever allow anyone to disrespect you!!! You guys were simply looked down upon!!! You were belittled!!! You were not that important and that has to stop now!!! The way you are treated will reflect the way you are paid. We have begun the conversation, we are putting systems in place but nyinyi mme kataa kuamka!!! People will only treat you the way you allow them to. Na Mkingoja tuwabembeleze mtangoja sanaa. Mezeni piriton, chukueni duvet mlaleee kabisaaaaaaaaaa,” wrote Eric.
